Housing Information
Figuring out your housing situation is a critical step in your successful transition to MICA. We know that many of our transfer students will live off campus, so to provide some helpful resources before you arrive at Orientation, please visit our Off-Campus Housing Listing. 

For those of you living on campus, please plan to move in on Friday, January 14th between 10 am - 4 pm. There will be a required session from 7-8pm for new students living on campus (Zoom link).

It is important to remember that as a new MICA student you are responsible for knowing and abiding by all of the policies and procedures at MICA, some of which may be different from your previous institution. 

Finally, we hope you are looking forward to beginning your time at MICA. No matter where you are joining us from and what experiences you will bring with you, we have high hopes that you will find MICA to be a welcoming and inspiring community of artists!


We know your transition to MICA marks an important milestone. We are proud to celebrate this exciting new chapter with you, and are here to support you every step of the way. You can always get in touch via email at orientation@mica.edu
